Unfortunately, one of the owners featured in my book, Nikos Tsiaxiras, passed away suddenly on April 14, 2016. My heart broke at hearing this news. Too young, too soon. At the memorial on Sunday, May 15, we had a chance to say goodbye. I heard many stories, about who he was as a husband, father, businessman, and friend… He touched so many lives, whether through his warm smile, delicious food, or beautiful music.
I feel so incredibly honored that I was able to tell Nikos’ story. I consider myself lucky to have met this kind and caring man. He touched so many lives, and he has impacted mine, as well. Nikos, you will always be remembered. Rest in peace.
